ASUS ROG X IKEA
With an estimated 2.5-billion gamers around the world, ROG and IKEA have recognized the interest in gaming now extends to all family members and all rooms. The two brands have now come together to combine their world-class and complementary design expertise to create products that make gaming at home more comfortable and more fun.
Don’t go rushing to your nearest IKEA just yet, because this unique collab will only be available to consumers in China as early as February 2021, with the collection expanding to serve other markets by October 2021.
“Gamers globally know and love the ROG brand and they trust it to deliver the most exciting gaming innovations in the market,” “Our new partnership with the experts at IKEA will allow ROG to find new and interesting ways to delight gamers in and around the home.”Kris Huang, General Manager of the ASUS Gaming Gear and Accessory Business Unit
“With the rapid growth of gaming market across the world and a fast growing number of people playing, IKEA is curious about how home furnishing could improve the gaming experience and life around it,” “By teaming up with ROG, IKEA wants to combine home furnishing knowledge with ROG’s expertise in creating exceptional gaming experiences.

First up in the ROG X IKEA lineup, there’s a UPPSPEL standing desk where its height can be adjusted. It features a motorized height adjustment system, and the back of the table also has a slit for your cables to run through the back. There’s also a new MATCHSPEL gaming chair that has adjustable height, headrest, and armrest too.
There appears to be ROG themed floormats to keep your floors clean and protected from your gaming chairs’ wheels. Not only that, there’s also matching gaming mousepads to go along with the whole aesthetic.
As seen below, carrying the ROG Delta S is the LANESPELARE headphone stand. It doesn’t have any RGB lighting scheme to it, but it does have a wooden build with a metal knob at the top. The back part of the headphone also has a knob for you to store and wind your cables when they’re not in use.
The ROG x IKEA collab also introduced a new black ROG themed UPPSPEL pegboards. It also comes with special themed hooks and straps to keep all your tools, peripherals in place.
To keep your drinks in place, and to clear some space on your desk, the LANESPELARE mug/cup holder uses a screw-in mechanism to attach itself to the edge of the table. It also has a cutout on the front to allow for handles to fit in nicely.
To place snacks, tissues, or foods, there’s also a side cabinet with two drawers, and one open compartment. It also seems that the cabinet will come with a headphone hook to allow you to hang your headphones on the side of the cabinet. Neat!
For mobile streamers, ROG x IKEA also prepared a phone stand that has a built-in ring light to not only your phone for your livestreams, but to also give you the additional lighting to improve your looks. For your gaming mice, the collab also featured a minimalist mouse bungee to keep your mouse cable off the table to prevent any drag.
Lastly, there’s the comfort pillows which include a neckrest pillow, as well as a cushion pillow that has pockets for you to warm your hands in.
These furniture look amazing, and it will definitely add aesthetics points to any gaming room. Gaming has seen monumental growth over the years, and we’re really excited to see these furnitures from the ROG x IKEA collab. One thing’s for sure, we can’t wait to make a trip to IKEA once these become available.
